Paul Dobson, of the brothers Dobson (himself, [[Creator/MichaelDobson Michael]], and [[Creator/BrianDobson Brian]]), is an accomplished Canadian voice actor, one of the many who work with Creator/TheOceanGroup, based in UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}}, British Columbia, UsefulNotes/{{Canada}}. Paul is frequently cast in one of two roles: a brilliantly cunning, evil villain, or a thuggish strong guy. He also plays characters that provide some sense of comic relief, usually a minion of some kind of relatively small size like Myoga on ''Manga/InuYasha''.

Arguably, Paul's most notable role as a villainous character would be Naraku from ''Manga/InuYasha'', with the manipulative Sideways from ''[[Anime/TransformersArmada Transformers: Armada]]'' and the vicious dark-hunter Nidhiki from ''WesternAnimation/{{BIONICLE}} 2: Legends of Metru Nui'' as close seconds. As the tough guy, he is recognized as the elder Enzo Matrix from ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'', and the unstoppable Juggernaut ([[MemeticMutation Bitch]]) from ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution''. His prominent comedic roles are Myoga from ''Manga/InuYasha'', and Howdy from ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'', as well as Happosai from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. He commonly acts alongside his brothers, such as during the hit Bionicle movies B2 and B3, in which he also played Toa Whenua (a strong-guy character) (and the above mentioned Nidhiki's partner Krekka is voiced by Michael Dobson), as well as during ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' and ''Hamtaro''. He played Doctor Doom in ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFourWorldsGreatestHeroes'' as well as ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' (where he also voices Shuma-Gorath), along with Graham Aker in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'', which aired on [[Creator/{{Syfy}} Sci Fi]]. He does the voice of Zarbon in the original dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. He voices the main villain Moo in the overlooked anime, ''Anime/MonsterRancher'', secondary antagonist Chiros in ''WesternAnimation/KongTheAnimatedSeries'', and the E.O. Captain who serves as antagonist of the first two episodes of ''Manga/BlackLagoon''. He also plays a number of roles in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}: VideoGame/DawnOfWar'': most notably, he is the primary voice actor of Captain Gabriel Angelos, and provided the first voice of Eliphas the Inheritor, as well as the voice of General Sturnn.

His Californian counterparts are Creator/CrispinFreeman, Creator/MichaelMcConnohie and Creator/KeithSilverstein, and his Texan counterparts are Creator/JMichaelTatum, Creator/MikeMcFarland and Creator/KentWilliams. Also is the Canadian counterpart to Creator/DaisukeOno, Creator/YoshimasaHosoya and Creator/JojiNakata.
